Broken rail detection system: a reliable and accurate on-board solution

The ability to detect broken or badly cracked rail from revenue trains in near real time transforms the way that the rail is monitored for major rail defects. This new technology opens up opportunities to enhance the safety and operations of a railroad by overcoming significant limitations in the performance of current detection technologies. This paper discusses how the on-board broken rail detection system works, interacts with operations, and creates new opportunities for technical development.
